ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier - Preliminary final

Canada v Ireland

Ireland won by 10 wickets (with 63 balls remaining)

0.5

Johnston to Patel, OUT, fuller ball outside the off stump. Patel has a go at it. The ball swung late. Patel who was drawn into the drive finds the outside edge and Stirling gladly takes it at first slip

H Patel c Stirling b Johnston 0 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Canada 1/1   R Gunasekera 0* (2b)   DT Johnston 0.5-0-0-1

6.6

Johnston to Kumar, OUT, and that's a wicket for him off the final ball of his spell. He drags Kumar forward with a length ball. Kumar is looking to square-drive and gets a faint outside edge. Enough for Wilson to go up in glee as he pouches the ball

NR Kumar c †Wilson b Johnston 17 (15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 113.33

Canada 38/2   R Gunasekera 18* (24b 2x4)   DT Johnston 4-1-9-2

8.2

Dockrell to Hansra, OUT, and that's the arm-ball. Hansra comes forward in an attempt to defend it. He leaves a huge gap between the pad and the bat. Enough for the ball to slip in and hit the off stump

AS Hansra b Dockrell 1 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Canada 42/3   R Gunasekera 21* (28b 2x4)   GH Dockrell 0.2-0-1-1

10.3

Dockrell to Gunasekera, OUT, fuller ball outside the off stump. Gunasekera sweeps and gets a top edge. Stirling runs in from deep square-leg and takes a supreme catch

R Gunasekera c Stirling b Dockrell 26 (33b 2x4 0x6) SR: 78.78

Canada 54/4   Rizwan Cheema 5* (8b)   GH Dockrell 1.3-0-5-2

11.1

Sorensen to Rizwan Cheema, OUT, short ball outside the off stump. Cheema looks to flick it over the top. He doesn't get enough wood as Dockrell has to run to his right from mid-on and take the catch

Rizwan Cheema c Dockrell b Sorensen 5 (11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

Canada 55/5   TG Gordon 0* (1b)   MC Sorensen 1.1-0-13-1

14.2

Sorensen to Baidwan, OUT, short ball outside the off stump. Baidwan is stuck on the backfoot and looks to drive. He gets an inside edge and he hears the death rattle. He should be disappointed with his shot selection

HS Baidwan b Sorensen 6 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Canada 67/6   TG Gordon 6* (11b)   MC Sorensen 2.2-1-13-2

16.5

Sorensen to Bhatti, OUT, short ball outside the off stump. Bhatti moves across and looks to cut it. He gets an outside edge back to the keeper

RA Bhatti c †Wilson b Sorensen 8 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

Canada 81/7   TG Gordon 10* (19b)   MC Sorensen 3.5-1-20-3

18.3

Dockrell to Gordon, OUT, fuller ball outside the off stump. Gordon comes down the track and lofts it straight down the throat of O'Brein at long-off

TG Gordon c O'Brien b Dockrell 23 (26b 3x4 0x6) SR: 88.46

Canada 96/8   Junaid Siddiqui 2* (3b)   GH Dockrell 3.3-0-18-3
